Fine Art Shipping for Museums & Galleries

Secure and Timely Fine Art Shipping Services

We have shipped everything from Norman Rockwell paintings sent to France for the Caen Memorial for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings to Rembrandt paintings and Galileo’s original telescope.

Shipping expensive art both internationally and domestically requires proper handling and packaging to ensure the artwork arrives in the same condition as it left. It is important to work with a logistics provider that has experience in handling art and can provide the necessary safe handling, climate-controlled transportation, insurance and customs clearance. Mercury guarantees the secure and timely transportation of your artwork to any location in the world, ensuring that it arrives in pristine condition.
